Imagine seating face-to-face in an economy class flight!

Published on : Monday, July 13, 2015

new-seat-styleA new seating pattern for airplanes will have passengers sitting face-to-face in an economy class flight. Industry supplier Zodiac Seats of France have patented this new seating configuration and named it ‘Economy Class Cabin Hexagon’. The seating plan will have travelers sitting side-by-side, with the middle seat facing the rear of the plane.

 

As airlines strive to increase profits, the latest seating design is a result of Solomon Asch’s classic elevator experiment caught on the 1960s television show “Candid Camera”. It marks the latest in a series of seating plans that seek to let planes carry more people.

 

Then carriers began “cutting shoulder space by wedging an extra seat into each coach row,” they noted. The new trend reverses half a century of seat growth in economy class.
Over the last few years, carriers have looked at a range of seating options that maximize passenger numbers without increasing floor space.

    Because of the cheapness, in fact bold daylight robbery of the airlines, I don’t fly anymore. Period. If my fleet of automobiles, Amtrak or a ship won’t get me there, I’m not going.
    When airlines started charging for basic luggage, that was too much. Southwest doesn’t do that and their bottom line beats most of the big boys to death.
    Again, I DON’T fly. Not now, now ever again.
